A short list of links and interesting events will be posted later. Please check back. Enjoy your summer.
June 2014 Meeting: Regular Meeting Thursday, June 5 at Garden Club + Special Event Saturday, June 7 at Springs Preserve
The meeting is Thursday, June 5 at the Garden Club Building on the Lorenzi Park property, 3333 W. Washington Ave., near the corner of Twin Lakes Drive. The parking lot is entered from Twin Lakes Drive. Doors open at 6:30 PM; Board Members should be present no later than 6:30 PM. The open meeting begins at 7:00 PM. (While some snacks or beverages may be supplied, if it is convenient to brings something along to share, it's always nice. If possible, plan to help set up prior to and put away after the meeting.)
It was, without a doubt, a whopper of spriing for those of us active in the shows, sale, and Mead View outing. (Resize the image and you'll more easily see my size 6 ring easily sitting on the giant blossom.) We'll recap the Spring Show and Sale as well as some of the field trips we've enjoyed this year. In addition, we'll put together some ideas for the June 7 club event at the Springs. If we have time, we may be able to look at some websites and other resources that will useful. We hope to see you all there.
We've had wonderful activities in April. Throughout May we'll be updating the website with more information. Instead of a regular meeting, we'll have one or two special activities. Watchyour email.
The April Show and Sale was truly one of the best in years. The variety of plants on display shows we grow a bit more than "bunny ears." Photos and winners will be published when we recover from the 2nd April event. MEAD VIEW OUTING was "super cactus fragalistic experience!" Photos will appear shortly, but we want you to attend the June meeting to see them together and catch the "field trip report" from those of us that made the trip.
Thanks to all for helping to make the Spring CSSSN season fun.
Just added 3 galleries to our collection: Rick Holmes Greenhouse, In the Landscape, and From the Great Outdoors. Also added his link http://www.rickholmesphotos.com/
I will post more about the best Show and Sale in several years. The people that attended, the plants that were shown, the awards that were won: oh my, I was not prepared for such success. Moving forward, Mead View tour is set for April 26, 2014. I'll be publishing information about it in a few days. I hope many of you will be able to join in and see some unique plant material.
